Todayâ€™s the big day! Â Iâ€™m in Madrid, Spain to experience the Amex Unstaged music series, where Coldplay will play live in a bullring tonight. Seriously, how insane is my life right now? Iâ€™m about to see one of my favourite bands ever, in one the coolest countries Iâ€™ve ever been to. The fact that Iâ€™m doing it with three other Canadian bloggers, 1loveTO, She Does The City and Hip Urban Girl, makes the experience even more unreal.
But one of the coolest aspects of the concert â€“ besides the fact that itâ€™s being directed by filmmaker Anton Corbijn â€“ is that I wonâ€™t be watching it alone. Along with the thousands of people in the stadium, the whole concert will be live-streamed to the entire world as a VEVO event on YouTube. Following the live performance, the concert will be rebroadcast for the next several hours, and live, on-demand clips will be available for another 48-hours at www.YouTube.com/ColdplayVEVO.
When itâ€™s time (2 pm MST), click here to watch the live stream and see if you can spot me. Â Iâ€™ll be the bald guy screaming my head off. Iâ€™m also going to be live Tweeting from the concert using the hashtag #amexunstagedCAD.
Now if youâ€™ll excuse me, I have to go warm up my lungs.
